  2. Tongs, or a huge clothespin?

    I needed some tongs for the grill, so I grabbed some oak and glued 3 pieces together, rounded them over a bit, rasped some grooves, and there you have it. They are 17×3/4×2.5, and they just fit in the kitchen drawer. Finished with sesame seed oil.
  3. a nice pair of tongs

    Last weekend, I was looking for a quick little project to fill in some time, while I was waiting for glue to dry on my little cherry box.

  4. BBQ Tongs

    The Wood Buddies have various family members who pride themselves on grilling.

  5. Toaster Tongs-one piece

    It seems customers always ask for things you don't have. This lady asked for a pair of tongs for hot things in the toaster. I told her I'd make them from Osage orange because it is a springy wood that the Indians made their bows out of. So I found a block or Osage orange and it was big enough to...

    I've seen simmilar tongs around the net & we needed a new set for home so after one aborted prototype I came up with this design. They worked so well I made a few more sets in Cherry, Maple and Walnut. They are all about 12" long by 2". For the hinge pin I used a length of heavy gauge bare...
  12. Salad Tongs

    Nice and easy project. Good use for scraps. I think I got the idea from a magazine a while ago. You need to watch the thickness as they get hard to pinch if too thick.

    An easy scrap wood project : toast tongs When I go to the lumber yard I'm always amazed at the price of wood. When I finish a project and look at my scrap pile I think to myself that's probably 50 bucks right there, and being cheap I can never make myself throw any of it away except for the...
